San Francisco Fall Antiques Show 2018

Since 1981, the San Francisco Fall Antiques Show has been a key west coast event in the antiques category. Now in its 38th year, the popular show has rebranded itself as the Fall Show, dropping "Antiques" from its name to emphasize a scope of varied fine art, folk art, design and antiques.

Running from Oct. 3-6, with an opening gala on Oct. 2, at the Fort Mason Center for the Arts & Culture’s Festival Pavilion, this year’s show theme is “wanderlust,” with designer-curated vignettes emphasizing travel.

The Grand Entry Hall will feature designers Alessandra Branca, Veere Grenney, SagreraBrazil Design and Hutton Wilkinson, who have each pulled works from exhibitors' offerings to feature in four room vignettes centered on the theme "A Compass Rose: North, South, East & West."

Among the new exhibitors, Mexico City-based Rodrigo Rivero Lake will exhibit modern and ethnographic works. An array of categories awaits, from the classic Georg Jensen silver at Gallery 925 to Abstract Expressionist works by Grace Hartigan at New York-based Orange Chicken.

A full event schedule includes the social gala, book signings and lectures by top designers such as Show Chair Suzanne Tucker, UK-based India Hicks and author Bunny Williams.

From ticket sales, 100% of net proceeds benefit Enterprise for Youth which connects local students to paid internships.
